Leopard wins more times than not. Almost a complete translation of a Cougar vs Mackenzie Valley Wolf match with the exception that a Hyena has better odds at winning than a Wolf.

Leopard has claws, effective canines, very agile body, has wider skull and nearly same length skull .. Also already seldom hunts Hyenas ..

Hyena's only advantages stamina and bite force .

Leopard wins 8/10 .

Good match up, but the leopard would win more often than not. It's bite is still plenty powerful to kill large animals, it has a good agility advantage, and it has the claws to help it control the hyena.
A pine needle fell. The eagle saw it. The deer heard it. The bear smelled it

Only? Like all feline lovers you way underrate the stamina factor in a face to face match. Way more important than those wider skull and canines stuff, that makes no sense here, given the Hyena's bite match that.

No way it is a 8\10. More like a 7/10, but only if the Leopard is fast enough to make a perfect attack. The more time passes the more likely it is the feline gonna lose the match.

Totally wrong comment .

Uhhh not totally wrong. The longer the Hyena survives, the more the odds favor the Hyena at winning since cats specialize in a quick take down. There's a reason many felids give up a hunt if they are spotted or miss a hit. They can't chase after their prey for miles on end like Canids or Hyenas.

But Carnivorous, stamina is a factor that only helps if the Hyena isnt subdued in the fight. Skull size and agility play a major role too just like the Hyena's bite force. Every little factor play a part.

But I agree, that's what I said too: the Leopard wins if it makes the perfect attack, cause the Hyena can not do much in that case. And overall I favor the feline too.

My point was, it made me smile how Amur has worked hard to describe all the thousands of Leopards qualities, while the Hyena was described like.. yeah.. that stamina and bite stuff.. whatever. While the stamina is one of the most important factor in a face to face death match; and a good Hyena's bite can suffocate a Leopard way faster than viceversa.

I disagree, this is a much closer match, unlike the weight disparity of 30kg between a mckenzie valley wolf and a cougar that coexist in the same habitat, the hyena actually overlaps in weight with the largest population of african leopard and most are actually larger than most population of leopards, though all that said I do I favor the african leopard.

It is obvious that the leopard could have very easily killed wolf. Cougar can't easily kill hyena. If he be able to.

But how come?
That is not logical of you to say that "the longer the fight, the more likely the feline".

Time itself does not affect the stamina and metabolism of the leopard so that does not affect the proccess of both species.

Leopards have larger hearts and lungs in comparision to aboreal big cats.

Leopards still have way lower stamina than Hyenas, and their own fights are quite short. So his argument still makes sense. You must then argue how often the Leopard could kil the larger Hyena before tiring out and getting overwhelmed.

One key point is that big cats don't really require stamina-for subduing prey or opponents
in combat(1 to 1 instances), seeing as they can restrain an opponent via grappling; which
does not require a ton of energy expenditure.

grappling down a large animal does require alot of energy.

with huge animals like buffalos that simply can't be powered down, they will throttled whilst being kept steady, which requires alot of static strength from the cat.

It does, but explosive energy at that. That's why big cats rush for the kill while canids just charge or trot the animal out till it tires out from either blood loss or exhaustion.
